Pantero Broadens Semantic Data Integration

Pantero Broadens Semantic Data Integration

Pantero Corporation, a provider of data integration software announced that it has made available key new innovations for semantic integration in the Pantero Release 1.2. In this release, Pantero debuts the Expression Builder for creating sophisticated data interpretation and validation services without having to write code. In addition to previous releases on the BEA software platform (Nasdaq: BEAS), this release adds support for IBM (NYSE: IBM) and Sun Microsystems (Nasdaq: SUNW) platforms to extend the platform compatibility of Pantero software. Pantero Release 1.2 also introduces new standards support with the import and conversion to XSD of Unified Modeling Language (UML) models.

The release further strengthens Pantero's position as a provider of tools for delivering valid business data in integration projects. Pantero's software is the first integration solution to go beyond managing the format integrity of data to address the far costlier challenge of managing the business validity of data shared between applications. Building on open XML standards and scalable J2EE platforms, Pantero automates the validation and enrichment of data flows based on metadata instead of requiring hundreds to thousands of lines of code. "By supporting the most widely-deployed platforms and data formats available today, Pantero brings valid data interoperability to virtually every corner of the enterprise," said Pano Anthos, CEO of Pantero. "This will bring dramatic cost savings to a wide range of integration projects, particularly in maintaining the validity of integrated data over time as systems, message definitions, and requirements change."

Benefits to Developer and Architect Community

Pantero's software provides benefits to architects by providing an exchange model with metadata for semantic integration. This model allows architects to create and maintain a data architecture that centrally manages the business rules and operations that govern data interoperability. For software developers, Pantero ensures that every exchange of data is valid, consistent, and useful, by linking business rules to data structures and message formats.

One of the most expensive and complex challenges of integrating business applications is ensuring semantic interoperability of data exchanged between systems. Enterprises often have multiple definitions for a customer, product, or order, as well as business requirements to present data about these entities differently according to rules and roles within the business. Reconciling the inherent differences and validating the rules assigned to the data in a given business case require an array of rules, business operations, and validation services. With Pantero, these operations are not hidden throughout the enterprise, but instead are available to developers in a single, consistent, and unified view where they can be managed and reused.

Release 1.2 includes a new graphical tool for defining business integrity rules. The Expression Builder allows developers to graphically assign meaning to data concepts and create complex mappings to create rules that ensure that shared data is valid within the context of local applications.

"With the addition of graphical tools to define not just transformations but also integrity rules, not only does developer productivity increase, but the opportunity to catch and correct data problems earlier in the transaction cycle allows systems to reduce the number of expensive manual corrections to transactional data that plague financial systems," said Evan Bauer, industry consultant and former CTO at Credit Suisse First Boston. "Pantero's software uniquely addresses these challenges by treating data in-flight with the same schema-driven rigor that is applied to data stored in relational databases."


The Pantero Release 1.2 is available immediately. For full platform support and additional information, please contact a Pantero representative.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...
